Abstract

Water and life go hand to hand. Water pollution is a major global problem. It is the contamination of water bodies, usually by different human activities. Water bodies include lakes, rivers, oceans, and groundwater. Microbial pathogens are one of the major health risks associated with water. This can lead to public health problems for people living downstream. Animal washing, car washing, clothes washing are the factors contribute to lake pollution. Domestic sewage, industrialization, population growth, pesticide and fertilizers, urbanization and weak management system are the major sources of water pollution. There is greater association between pollution and health problem causing pathogens. The aim of the present study was to assess the Physico-chemical and microbiological quality of water in Khadan lake. Water samples were collected and analyzed by qualitatively and quantitatively. The Physico-chemical properties like Temperature, Colour, Dissolved oxygen, BOD, pH, Turbidity, Total suspended solids and Total dissolved solids were studied to evaluate the quality of water. Microbiological study includes total microflora, coliform count and study of aerobic and anaerobic flora of lake. Physico-chemical and microbiological study shows high level of pollution and microbial contamination which may leads to high incidences of waterborne diseases in nearby community. However, improving the quality of water should include spreading awareness to the public regarding proper waste disposal system and the importance of cleaning their surrounding area.

Key Words
